Organic Little Pot of Bliss!
Summary

Just from reading the product information you can see what a high quality concoction it is. To contain 100% organic ingredients which haven't been watered down in the slightest is a breath of fresh air. I love the glass jar with silver screw lid, it gives...

Inexpensive whilst doing a good job.
Summary
I love this just for the clear gel. I apply this every day on top of my manicured brows, it keeps the colour set and stops them from disappearing half way through the day.

Packaging is normal ELF; basic but crisp. It's a great product for keeping the brows where they should be, it's kind of like a top coat to seal them on. For just £3.75 it's worth every penny.

Turkish Delight smelling Hand Cream. Go for it!
Summary
Lovely, pretty packaging which just screams Melvita! A rose scented hand cream that leaves the skin soft and nourished.

My initial thought was the packaging looks nice and lady like, it's very much Melvita's style. I love the flip top as it is so much easier to use than a screw top, how hard is it to reapply a screw top when your hands have had cream...

My Favourite Shower Oil of all Time - Pure Bliss!
Summary
An amazing product that smells divine. It leaves your skin soft and subtle.

I had heard good things about this and decided to buy a big bottle as a treat. I'm glad I did! If it wasn't for the price I would give this full marks as it deserves it. When you slather onto your skin it's a clear...

A luxurious product perfect for a treat.

I love the pump action dispenser as it saves on waste and once you know how many pumps you need you will not need to use a drop more. When I initially put this product onto my face I felt like it may be a bit too...

Amazing Quality - Amazing Colours!
Summary
This is amazing, everything about it is amazing! I am in love!

I only came across MUA when they had their special deal on. Spend £8 and get this palette (worth £8) for free (Deal now over). I thought I may as well, it's cheap and cheerful so what can I lose. You have 24 colours to...

A dreamy Fragrance!

My all time favourite fragrance.

If I could only live with one fragrance - this would be it. I love the little sharp red rectangle bottle, it stands out and looks very nice. I love how you slide the cover off to revel the actual bottle. I'm unsure...

I found this sickly sweet. Reminds me of a Cherry Bakewell. I think the fragrance wore away very quickly which defeats the object. If you wanted to smell of it continuously then you would end up paying a lot of money replacing the bottles. This isn't one for...

I found this an excellent product. The only reason that I haven't given it full marks is because I suppose the packaging could be a little bit better. Otherwise every single factor is spot on. The scent is nice and relaxing (as stated on the label). The amount...

Lathers up well, smells lovely!
Summary
A lovely product with a subtle smell that lathers well.

I bought this body wash when it was on offer for only £1. It's an absolute bargain. I think it's creamy, smells lovely (but not overpowering) and lathers up just right even though you don't need a lot.

Judge This Book by it's Cover - Bold, Stunning & Edgy!
Summary
The say don't judge a book buy its cover, however, the contents of this book are just like the cover - bold, unique and edgy.

My friend recommended Urban Decay to me. She showed me what she could achieve with her eyes and told me the best way to get such bright and popping colour was by using Urban Decay products. I decided to buy this 'Book of Shadows' even though...

Summary
A lovely little kit, great for touching up the brows and making them look tidy & defined!

My friend gave me this as I was saying I needed something for my brows - I find pencils clumpy and awkward to use. I have very light brows and you can hardly see them, this kits was perfect for defining them and giving them shape. I couldn't be...

Summary
I love the pencil, pretty unique and not just another eyeliner.

I have tried a lot of Kohl eyeliners in my time. This is one of the better ones. It has a bold black colour which stands out. The best factor is that it doesn't run down the eyes or inside the eye corner. This is my pet...

Spackle - Under Make-Up Primer - great feel, great staying power! Great product!

This is the first ever primer I have used properly, so I suppose I have nothing to base it on. The thought of primer normally makes me think of a skin which cannot breath...the thought of another layer doesn't sit well with me in general. However,...

The only concealer/highlighter you will even need.
Summary
I bought this in a special 5 piece set and I am in love! It's a concealer as well as a highlighter so double the bargain!

I bought this as part of a 5 piece set - for the price I wouldn't have bought alone. After trying it I have changed my mind. I would definitely spend the full RRP on it when it runs out. The packaging is lovely. Very posh feeling...

I have used this since I was a child. My mom used to give it to me when I had sore and cracked lips. It moisturises the lips well, however it also leaves a weird coating. I always find if you drink cold water when you have...

Summary
Fresh and zingy.

As you squeeze this cream onto your hands it seems quite thin and watery. However you rub it in and it automatically absorbs into the skin and the smell drifts up with a zingy blast on the senses. It really does cool and it feels amazing. ...

Summary
Fresh and crisp. Perfect for refreshing yourself on a summers day.

The packaging is cute, very pretty and the box is sturdy and expensive looking, nothing like the boxes you get normal perfumes in. This is a great little perfume for the summer. It's fresh, and bright and very energizing. It reminds me of lemon bonbons...in a...

Summary
This is an amazing hand cream. One of the best I have used.

This is a lovely product. It is silky, thick and smooth and leaves the hands feeling AMAZING! It is so thick that you don't need a lot to cover the hands nicely. It doesn't leave a greasy feeling on the hands as it absorbs right in. ...

Luxurious face cream...expensive but worth it (if you have the money)
Summary
Luxurious, moisturising and non greasy.

I like this a lot, however I can't justify paying the price. It has a nice subtle fragrance which, in my opinion, has a calming effect. You don't need a lot as it goes a long way (which is positive when you look at the...

Bonbon smelling zingy fresh!
Summary
The smell is like lemon bonbons... absolutely gorgeous. It is one of my favourite to use, however it is that nice that the price could end up a problem.

The bottle is very cute. It would be perfect for a present as it's stylish and quite frankly quite sexy. This has such a smell that when you use it you automatically feel alive and awakened. It is light, fresh and has a natural not overpowering...

Good everyday cream as the price isn't high.
Summary

I found this cream quite watery and thin. When I applied it I found it greasy so was a bit put off. Maybe it's because my skin isn't naturally very dry. Perhaps a dryer skin surface would absorb the moisture a bit better. You can clearly smell rose but...

Summary
If you want a mini DIY home facial - this is perfect.

When I initially out this on I was a bit put off by the smell. It has a earthy muddy fragrance BUT it fits for being a clay mask. It isn't over powering and you will get used to it. When on the skin I felt...

Summary
Great for removing make up, no nasty harsh smell. Very effective.

I use this to take my make up off. I soak a cotton wool pad, sit it on my closed eye and any make up just glides off. It stops me rubbing and tugging on my eyes and face when removing make up. The price is a bargain....

Absolutely lovely! My new favorite.
Summary
Amazing product. I love the refreshing feeling it gives, very cooling and crisp. It leaves your skin lovely and balanced...not a hint of shine or oil at all.

This is a lovely refreshing toner, as soon as you put it on your face you can feel it sooth and cool. There is no strong smell and it absorbs easily leaving no grease or shine.

Summary
Good for sensitive skin with multi uses. Not heavily fragranced and great if you need to freshen up on the go.

These face wipes are nice and easy to use. Just whip one out the packet and you have a face wipe, body wipe or even hand wipe. Each wipe is a decent size. The thickness is good too. There isn't a strong smell to them which is good...

The tube is very cute, loving the dark pinky purple. I put my mascara on first thing in the morning. By the night time it is still in tact and I haven't had to deal with flaking around the eyes. The shape of the...

Summary
Amazing product. I will definitely buy this again. I love how it covers imperfections on your face without it looking like you have foundation on.

I was a little bit nervous about using this, when I put it on my hands it looked to dark - don't be fooled! It's perfect. I have very fair skin and I think this matched a dream. My face looked crisp and covered, it blended in really well....

This product is lush - I will definitely be looking for more of the Melvita range to try.

Tresemme - Split Remedy Conditioner

It's a large bottle, handy if you want to just buy it and forget about buying more for a while. Makes the hair soft just after washing.

I would recommend this product as a bargain buy, but I don't think it's as professional as it makes out.

I recommend this product for occasional use, perhaps if your hair is very oily/greasy it would be better not too use it too much. It's good too buy and just forget about as it's such a large bottle.

Try it, it might work if your hair isn't easily greasy.
